This is an ongoing scheme that supports the cafe as well as helping others in our community. 

We operate a very successful Pay it Forward scheme whereby anyone can donate any amount – a lump sum, the equivalent of an entry fee or a cuppa and cake deal etc. WE then make a note of the funds available and use it to support families who are struggling financially. 

We LOVE this scheme because it allows us to:

  • generate income to support the ongoing work of the cafe
  • allow families to access our safe space on a regular basis without a financial worry
  • allows us to give away free food to those who may be struggling financially for any reason (maternity pay sucks!)

We don’t ask for proof of income, we do trust that the scheme is not abused. We do REGULARLY encourage people to ask and we also exercise our discretion from time to time.

If you would like to ask any questions about this scheme or talk in confidence about how it may help you please send us a DM on Facebook or email us at 

If you would like to contribute you can do so via Paypal: or ask us for bank details. We also accept card / cash payments at the Cafe.
